To be part of the Edison team is an honour and I will try my very best to ensure the governance of the school is matched with doing the best for the children; within budget and providing a first class service to all parties.
As Chair of Governors I propose to lead a team which is professional and one that holds each other accountable to the highest standards. I will ensure we have the skill set amongst our governors to fulfil our obligations to Edison Primary School.
On a personal note; as a mother of two teenage children I know how important primary school education is in getting a good footing into the secondary phase of a child’s education. Every parent wants the best for their child and we as a team understand that and aim to deliver in partnership with parents and other stakeholders.

It is fantastic to be involved in a diverse group where all parties share the common goal of providing children not only with excellent education both inside and outside of the classroom, but also providing parents with a flexible schooling alternative tailored to the needs of the modern working life.”

“The Edison school project is an exciting opportunity for me to put something back into a community my family and I have been part of for most of our lives. I am privileged to be working with a team of such brilliant and likeminded professionals who all too have child education and well-being at the heart of what they believe. I am looking forward to bringing some of my knowledge of health and well-being to the classroom environment; to be able to advise on important issues like healthy eating and outdoor activities so that we can facilitate the children’s development to help equip them for the modern world.”
Director of nursing
I am proud to be part of a new Science Specialist school , Edison Primary where young minds are going to be taught in an inspirational and innovative way resulting in an excellent provision all round.
I have known the two senior leaders in my professional capacity as a Headteacher and can vouch for their teaching pedagogy, passion for delivering the highest standard of education and care and their total belief in expecting the highest standards of achievement.
As a governor of Edison, I will be able to bring my experience of over 40 years in Education, twenty of which were as a Headteacher of a school which was recognised as Outstanding for three consecutive ofsted inspections. Also being a Headteacher Consultant, I have been able to support other schools and their Leaders. I am also a governor of a Secondary School which has enabled to expand my insight and experience.
I am very confident that with such a high level of leadership, Edison Primary is going to follow an educational path where each and every child is led through a journey of success: academic, creative and physical.
We as governors will have a an important role in ensuring that our strategic plans tie in closely with the school leaders endeavours to create a school which becomes a landmark for other institutions to follow. Our monitoring role will also ensure that all the plans and practices developed link strongly to the vision and values of Edison Primary School.

“As a governor of Edison Primary School, I will use my experience of building and leading a local healthcare organisation to ensure that Edison delivers the best possible education for local children, making their time at primary school happy, rewarding and fulfilling.
As a parent of two boys, I understand the importance of being confident that your child’s primary school will give them an excellent start to their academic career and I believe that Edison’s distinctive approach will do this.”
Michael Steel, CEO of a Healthcare Company
I am very excited to be working with such a strong group of education professionals on the Edison School Team.
As a member of the governance team, I am committed to giving them the support that they need in order to provide local children with an excellent education and the firm grounding required to succeed in the future.
As someone who followed a science/technical education and who has now worked for over 25 years as a technical/engineering professional, I am particularly excited about Edison’s establishment as a Science Specialist School. By opening the eyes of the children and their parents to how much fun science and technology can be, we will be at the forefront of “building for the future”
